This card is one of the "cycle" of two-lesson Transfiguration spells that destroy a lesson of a specific color. Any deck that leans heavily on lesson destruction should consider this card. And then promptly reject it. It's cheap to play, but sits in your hand as dead weight if your opponent is not playing with Quidditch lessons. If you want to strengthen your lesson destruction deck by playing one of the chancey cards from this cycle, my top choice would be Avifors, as there are presently no starting characters that provide a built-in Care of Magical Creatures lesson. Epoximise would be my second choice, as Wand Shop decks are obnoxious. Until heavy Quidditch lesson decks gain strength, this card does not warrant serious consideration in comparison.

This card is really guesswork, and the odds your opponent is running Quidditch LESSONS is very, very low. Hooch is used in almost every Quidditch deck, so the chances of this working are very slim. If this works, it is an ok card, but I would prefer Cobbing or Lost Notes, since they won't take up room most of the time.

Yes this is a stretch to the theme, but we had to fill the gap somehow. And since practice is cancelled, it's time to do that sweeping under the rug. If you were to drop this card while doing it, don't even bother picking it up. If there is one lesson type that doesn't get many lessons themselves played (or shouldn't); Quidditch is it. It has no power building effect as a lesson type, so use Hooch when playing Quidditch. Please don't use this card! You know in your heart, they only made this card so that there would be one like it for each lesson type.

Today's card is called Cancelled Practice. Now frankly, a Cancelled Practice tends to upset most quidditch players, but not me of course since I didn't need to practice to be as good as I was. You know sometimes it rough being so good at everything, but that is something I alone must bear. So now onto the card, it forces your opponent to discard one quidditch lesson. Well unless your psychic and you know you're opponent is going to be playing quidditch cards what's the point? Yes you have extra denial and yes the card only costs 2 transfig power to play but there are much more attractive ways to rid your opponent of cards, PON, lost notes, etc, etc. So unless you've been sniffing in the same smoke that Professor Trewlaney is, I would advise against using this card. It may have its place but overall, i would say avoid it if you can.

Canceled Practice?!!?!?!?!?? awwwwwwwww.... mannnnnn.... well, i guess i'll
go study or something.... This card.... well.... i pity the fool who doesn't
side this card out for picking on neville or lost notes. Now if you were
playing a draco discard deck that picked on lessons, this might be a
possibility. MIGHT. But overall, if you were going to pick on a lesson
type, care of magical creatures would be the better bet. only because right
now, it is the only type that there is no teacher who provides it. And that
folks.... is about all there is to say about cancelled practice. that and
KUDOS for the artwork.

At last we have the 5th Transfiguration precise lesson-removing spell. People were asking if there will ever be one, well here it is! Alas, it is not as useful as one should think. Avifors and Cauldron to Sieve were and are still are the most useful of the series since both CoMC and POTIONS need to be discarded. Epoximise should come in fashion since the number of Charms lessons being used has radically increased with the arrival of Wand Shop. Restricted Section and Cancelled Practice should be the less useful ones since usually, when this type of learning is required, the teachers start the duel and know their books by heart. Anyhow, a card that works in such a particular situation shouldn't be considered before any other card that could do the same in a more general way. Diffindo, PON and Lost notes are perfect examples. With your deck already filled with 12 cards of pure denial, you shouldn't need to consider Cancelled Practice anymore.
